Underwriters Lab and ICC Set New Program for Building Products
December 18, 2009

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and ICC Evaluation Service, Inc® (ICC-ES®) recently announced a partnership that will provide the building materials industry with a Dual Evaluation and Certification Program for building products. Together, the highly regarded UL Mark and the trusted ICC-ES Mark will demonstrate to tens of thousands of regulators, building officials, architects and insurers that the building products and systems they inspect, design and insure are compliant with appropriate codes and product safety standards.

The Dual Evaluation and Certification Program simplifies the testing and evaluation process for manufacturers. Through one point of contact for both UL and ICC-ES, manufacturers can conduct testing to UL safety standards, show code compliance via an ICC-ES Evaluation Report and get simultaneous postings of compliant products in UL’s Online Certifications Directory and Code Correlation Database along with ICC-ES’s online directory of evaluation reports and e-Codes Premium.

In addition to streamlining testing processes, UL has enhanced the usability of its product certification information. UL’s Code Correlation Database connects product certifications directly with specific applicable model installation code sections to help code authorities and other industry professionals find ICC-ES code-compliant products.
